 Silversea Cruises has entrusted Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri for the construction of a new ultra-luxury cruise ship, due to join the shipowner’s fleet in 2020.

The shipbuilding contract is worth about EUR 310 million (USD 372.6 million).

The new unit, tentatively named Silver Moon, will be a sister ship of Silver Muse, delivered in April at the shipyard in Sestri Ponente, Genoa.

The ship will feature 40,700 gross tons and have a capacity to accommodate 596 passengers on board.

The newbuild will expand Silversea’s fleet to 10 ships.

According to Fincantieri, the ship will bear the Green star 3 Design notation, which is assigned to units that are designed, built and equipped in order to prevent air and water pollution.

Furthermore, the COMF-NOISE A PAX and COMF-NOISE B CREW notations are assigned on the basis of the noise levels measured on the ship.

“Based on the high praise Silver Muse has earned with our guests, we are eager to build on our flagship’s success and move forward with a sister ship, which will bring us closer to fulfilling my father’s dream of a 12-ship fleet,” Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Chairman of Silversea, commented.

Fincantieri has 31 cruise ships are currently being designed or built in the group’s yards.
